Expression of Interest: TQE 15/11 - Kempsey (Smith Street) Marketing Campaign

Kempsey Shire Council invites Expressions of Interest and a Fee Proposal from suitably qualified marketing consultants to develop and implement a Marketing Campaign for the Smith Street Upgrade project. The $3.6m upgrade of the Kempsey Town Centre supports Kempsey Shire Council's Pacific Highway Bypass Strategy and Corridor Masterplan and aims to revitalise the town centre through beautification works that provide an enjoyable and modern shopping experience.

The launch of the Marketing Campaign must be timed to coincide with the completion of the works in mid to late November 2015, announce the completion of the works, and promote a uniquely defined pre-Christmas shopper experience in the Kempsey Central Business District.

This will require:

  1. Competitor and market analysis and defining a clear point of difference for the Kempsey shopping experience within a regional context
  2. Consulting with Smith Street retailers to identify the shopper offer and experience and provide them with an opportunity for input into the campaign development
  3. Campaign development, including identifying key messages, target audiences, communication channels, milestones and KPIs
  4. Creative development of any required branding or artwork tools (for example, TVC, social media posts, radio ads) appropriate to required delivery channels
  5. Coordinating the campaign schedule, including booking ad space with third party media outlets as required, supplying artwork and creating a post-campaign summary and portfolio of all coverage generated
  6. Reporting on pre-agreed campaign milestones and post-campaign KPIs

Expression of Interest: TQE 15/15 - Kiosks Horseshoe Bay & Crescent Head

As Reserve Trust Manager, Kempsey Shire Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from proponents with the capability, vision and relevant commercial experience to lease, either separately or together, Horseshoe Bay Kiosk at South West Rocks and Crescent Head Kiosk, both located in the scenic Macleay Valley Coast on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales.

Both Kiosks are located in popular tourism locations that are considered to have strong commercial growth potential and provide a quality tourism experience. Boasting pristine beaches, unspoiled hinterland, a temperate sub-tropical climate and a relaxed, nature-based tourism experience, the Macleay Valley Coast is a popular tourist destination that has experienced considerable growth in visitor numbers in recent years.

The Macleay's resident population of almost 30,000 people plays host to approximately 550,000 visitors per year. More information on the Macleay Valley Coast's tourism sector can be found at www.macleayvalleycoast.com.au

Crescent Head and South West Rocks are located off the Pacific Highway and are featured destinations of the Legendary Pacific Coast, being 450kms north of Sydney and 500kms south of Brisbane. Commercial passenger flight airports are located nearby in Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour.

It is the Trust's intention to offer a lease over the site(s) for a period of 5 years with a further option for 5 years. However, proposals for an extended term based on the level of investment supported by a business case may be considered.

Kempsey Shire Council will host two site inspections and interested parties are invited to register to attend:

  • Thursday, 3 September, 2015
    9:30-10:30am Horseshoe Bay Kiosk
    2:30-3:30pm Crescent Head Kiosk
